Synchronizing Azure AD User Photos
Azure AD user photos are synchronized automatically when the feature is enabled and will continue to synchronize once every four hours.
Photos uploaded manually will be given priority over those synced from Azure AD.
Exclaimer Cloud will synchronize the photo at the original size it was uploaded, up to a maximum size of 648x648. To apply your own size and other styling, see Working with the User Photo signature element.
Viewing User Photos
The current user photo for each user can be viewed within the User Photos section.
